Nicholas Densborn Passes Away After Illness of Several Years

Funeral Services are Held at Node Home Sunday; Interment in Cemetery There

Mr. Nicholas Densborn of Node passed away at the Mayo Brothers hospital at Rochester, Minn., at 10:30 p.m., Wednesday, June 30, 1926. Mr. Densborn had been suffering for several years with gland swelling and had been recently removed to Rochester in the hope that his health might be benefited, but his condition was such that cure was impossible. His son, Charles, was at his bedside when the end came.

The body was brought to Node last Saturday and funeral services were held at the home, three miles south of that place Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment was made in the Node cemetery, Rev. H.H. Koontz of the Lusk Community Church, officiating at the services.

Mr. Densborn was born in Germany on January 1, 1858. At the time of his demise he was 68 years, 5 months and 29 days of age. 

He came to the United States when but a few years old. Details of his early life are not available, but he came to Wyoming with his family in 1911 and took up farming and ranching near Node, engaging in that occupation until the time of his death.

He is survived by his widow, Mrs. L. Densborn, two sons, Charles and Henry Densborn of Node, Wyo., and one daughter-Mrs. F.E. Posten of St. Joseph Mo. Mrs. Posten arrived here last Saturday to attend the funeral services.

The Herald-Standard joins friends of the family in extending sincere sympathy to those sorrowed by this passing.
